Personal Reflection – Chick’s words earlier this week about not regretting after a Post, and feeling great and worth it to get out of bed
Coffee in the sun after post with sweet sustenance courtesy of Homer. Thank you
Words of Wisdom – Our mothers as SheepDogs. Protecting the sheep from the wolves. Different take than the eat or be eaten metaphor – be a sheep dog that is in for the long haul, selfless and willing to fight a righteous fight to protect the herd. Be a sheepdog.
Always amazing to Post at this AO – jawdropping each time. Honored to lead these men and brothers…the reason that keeps me coming back.
Rest fast – New week, new challenges, new opportunities and new minutes, hours and days.
